Gillian Keith performs her beautifully crafted theatrical recital ‘Debussy And His Muse’ with pianist Simon Lepper in Sheffield…

Blanche VasnierThis programme of some of Debussy’s most ravishing songs, written for high soprano Blanche Vasnier, and illuminated by extracts from diaries, letters and essays, allows the audience a closer look into their extraordinary relationship.

Focusing on the early songs of Debussy, the programme is complemented by mélodies by Debussy’s friend, Paul Vidal,  Edouard Lalo, and Préludes for solo piano. Revealing and poignant readings given by Gillian Keith are interwoven seamlessly into this most touching recital.
